It took someone like you to bring out the someone in me.
It took someone like you to help me open my eyes to see,
That the only experience in life more beautiful even than life
Was the joy of motherhood and not the joy of being a wife.
When you came into my life mewling your way into my heart;
You fisted your hand on my finger and stole me from the start.
I gazed upon your face all cherubic pink and scrunched red
And I knew that between us no words needed to be said.
Know this my child, you are a piece of my being, my essence.
And, nothing in this world will ever compare of ever lessen.
The magnitude of love that I hold in my heart just for you,
Which grows and burgeons every day, building up anew.
